Just a little update on our battle with poison oak-
Numbers 2&3 are lookin' good. They are both healing up and it doesn't seem to be spreading any more on them. However, #1 is suffering. She has it on both sides of her face and on her neck. I have washed just about everything she has come in contact with and tried a couple of different poison oak soaps. I also applied some 1% hydrocortisone cream, although I hate to give any kind of steroid. I figure that's better than a steroid shot at this point. I think she is very allergic to the urushiol oil, which is what causes the reaction.
What is to be thankful for in this situation? I am getting quite an education on poison oak, something I knew nothing about previously. We found out it is growing just outside our door, handy information, I think. Also I am seeing that my daughter does not have vanity issues. She is handling this quite well. I think better than I would in her shoes. If you think of her, please keep her in your prayers, as it could take up to 10 days to get rid of this stuff.
